About the course
Duration: 81 minutes (approx)
The role of a designated teacher is statutory in all schools and academies. They must have appropriate training and the relevant qualifications and experience to carry out their role. Whilst designated teachers must take lead responsibility for raising attainment of looked-after and previously looked-after children, other aspects of the role can be delegated to staff who should also undertake training appropriate to carrying out their duties.
This essential CPD course provides you with the core content you need to understand your statutory roles and responsibilities as a designated teacher and how to support the needs of looked-after and previously-looked after children.
Split into bite-sized modules, the training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, anytime, anywhere.
Delivered by subject matter expert, Maggie Parker, the course has been divided into four modules with a knowledge assessment at the end to help you evidence your learning.
